What’s the best way to tackle serious youth violence such as knife crime? What does a public health approach look like and does it work? Helen McKenna sits down with Karyn McCluskey, who pioneered this approach in Glasgow, and Martin Griffiths, Vascular/ Trauma Surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust.

If you or a loved one require advice, information or support relating to serious youth violence, the charities Victim Support and Childline have lots of resources on their websites and a helpline if you would like to speak to someone directly.
